I think this is rather presumptuous.
Hubris is defined as arrogance.
It is pretty rare to confuse the two.
Even though the the 2nd definition of
self-esteem is self-conceit, with a defintion
close to that of hubris, in my experience
it never the intended meaning.
I think a major "difference" which
would have made this distinction quite clear
is that hubris is usually directed at a
single facet of one's abilities, and I did
speak quite clearly of programming.
Self-esteem is a more general quality.
